The new replacement building for the Borneo Abenteuerlodges on two floors is located directly beside an original Orang-Ulu longhouse. Inspired from this traditional building typology the new built 2-storey interpretation sits on 5 m high posts, has 4 lodges for a maximum of 24 guests.
The theme “Traditional Borneo” shows up in many aspects of the design. Bamboo is the building material for furniture, railings, window shutters as well as a source of inspiration for the tiling layout of the bathrooms. The “Tree of life” motive of the Orang-Ulu can be found in multiple variations in spaces inside as well as outside.
